The art of collage is a big deal right now. I wanted to share this beautifully collaged tag by Kay Miller for Penny Black Stamps. I love how this became the focal point for a gorgeous card.

Today was another eventful day. My husband's uncle was laid to rest at the nearby National Cemetery, Mt. Tahoma National Cemetery. It is very similar to Arlington National Cemetery. The services are run with military precision and tremendous honor to the deceased "brother in arms." Uncle Warnie's service today was the 4th one I've attended at Mt. Tahoma National Cemetery and I've felt quite privileged each time. Afterward, for a previously scheduled event, we prepared a dinner for 11 people to continue our planning for the annual car show in Puyallup that honors my late brother-in-law, Paul Gaetz, by raising money for cancer research.
The past 10 days have been a blur. I think tomorrow I am actually going to have an opportunity to stop in at Art 'n Soul to check out "what's new" and to hopefully sign up for the Rosie's Roadshow card class this Saturday at the store. Even more important, I will be able to stop in and see my friend Sue, who is recovering from double knee replacement surgery . . . a brave woman she is!
My next project will feature a stamp from Magenta!
Thank you for stopping in. You're the best!
